These were entitled "Dramatic Photos".  I don't know if they all are, but you may like them, anyway.

In the resort town of Skagen you can watch an amazing natural phenomenon. This city is the northernmost point of Denmark, where the Baltic and North Seas meet. The two opposing tides in this place can not merge because they have different densities.

In the city of Buford (USA) lives just one person. He works as a janitor and as a mayor.
More elevation than population.

 The Washington Post's "Style Invitational" once again asked readers to take any word from the dictionary, alter it by adding, subtracting, or changing one letter, and supply a new definition. 

 ~ Intaxication: Euphoria at getting a tax refund, which lasts until you realize it was your money to start with.

 ~ Reintarnation: Coming back to life as a hillbilly.

 ~ Beelzebug (n): Satan in the form of a mosquito that gets into your bedroom at three in the morning and cannot be cast out.

~ Cashtration (n.): The act of buying a house, which renders the subject financially impotent for an indefinite period.

 ~ Giraffiti: Vandalism spray-painted very, very high.

~ Sarchasm: The gulf between the author of sarcastic wit and the person who doesn't get it.


  1. Maybe the Mayor of Buford could become vice-President of the United States! (It's a good movie idea, don't you agree?)

  2. Bill Gold was a columnist for the Post when I was a kid, retiring about the time I was in college, who I think started that word game. It's a great one, and I remember his columns with great fondness.
